The Wensington Castle was abuzz with activity. It was preparing to welcome an important Lord of the Reach, the Lord of Goldengrove who had been making their way through the Stormlands probably to make new allies & trade partners. Donel saw this as a golden opportunity, surrounded by enemies on all sides within his own wall, what he needed most was allies; Strong allies who would help solidify his position. He knew more than anyone the difficulty of such a task, but nothing worth having ever came easily.

Donel was wearing his finest attire, baring the Baratheon colours in way to honour them. The main hall was decorated in both the colours of The Reach & The Stormlands. The long wooden tables had been prepared, the kitchens had an array of food being freshly made while a few serving girls stood up against the cold walls of the hall with wine goblets in hand.

It was his first time as Lord having such highly regarded visitors, suffice to say Donel was quite nervous. He had hoped his sister would be present, but like most requests he gave she had refused. So here he stood at the Wensington gates awaiting his guests to arrive. He sent an invitation out to Alester's company just two weeks ago, who had responded with acceptance to the invitation. Donel hadn't held much hope that they would, others had been invited in the recent past & all refused. But now he finally had his chance to show he wasn't the monster he had been painted out to be.

Alester rode in on a White Horse, Wearing the silver armor of House Rowan and wore a White cloak with the Golden Tree of House Rowan adorned on the back. He made sure he looked as Lordly as possible. He rode beside his Knights. Men who all wore similar armor and horses. It was a show of force if anything. He even rode with the Lord Commander of his Knightly order who wore a large ceremonial helmet and wielded a Castle forged steel blade with the crest of the Knightly order on the cross-guard.

Alester had always been a fan of shows of strength, He was one of the most powerful lords in the reach and there was no reason for him to not show his power and soldiers. Though this was not a sign of aggression. He had bought a small portion of his forces, But he guessed it would have been enough to take the castle if he felt the need too. But they were tired and the men had no want for battle. And Lord Donel was an ally, or so the longly worded letter had said so.

One of the nights dismounted his horse at the halt and held the reigns of Alester's horse in his other hand as the Marshall dismounted. Alester looked over the lord,
Holding what he thought hidden under a stone glance at the man. "Bread and salt?" Alester said simply. The Lord Commander of the Order soon stood beside him, Now with his helmet under his arm. Behind two Knights stood without their cloaks and a hand on their swords, It wasn't a threat but a show of strength to the Storm Lord. There was no weakness or fear in any of his men's eyes. They were all veterans and Knights that had survived the hardest battles of the War so far.
Alester had been at most of them as well. Alester soon took off one of his gloves and offered his right hand. "I am Lord Alester Rowan, Lord of Goldengrove,
Marshall of the Nortmarch, Adviser to King Mace Tyrell and Lord of the Vigilants of the Northmarch."

Donel was impressed by the show of force now filling the stoned court yard of his castle, the men from the Reach looked strong as steel. Maybe he should have felt intimidated by it but he wasn't, he was simply impressed, excited even; having never witnessed so many soldiers in his short time as Lord. During past wars that the Stormlands had been involved in, Donel had mostly shied away from it all allowing his Father to deal with such matters of the House.

Two maids stood behind Donel, bread & salt in hand as a sign of peace & protection while in his House. "I am Lord Donel, House Wensington welcomes you." He then took Alester's hand in his slightly more tanned one & gave it a gentle shake. That's when the maids offered the bread & salt up. "I must say, the rumours are true about you. You're quite a sight to behold at the helm of such a fine army." Donel didn't much have an army, he had many capable men but no real formation of an army; something maybe he was in need of assistance with.

"Please join me in the main hall, we have a banquette being prepared in your honour." He looked up momentarily toward one of the walls balconies where a Lady looked over, it was his half sister & she gave him a glare that if looks could kill, he would be taken by the Seven already. "Hmm." Donel sighed, leading the men of the Northmarch toward the main hall. Some of the stable boys had rushed over in order to take the horses into the stables where they would be looked after.
